Zhang Zhixing

Academic Excellence, Abundant Practice, Volunteer Spirit

         The most unusual-looking main gate, the most difficult math analysis exams, the most luxurious library, the most affable President, the most beautiful Siyuan Lake, and the most lively BBS, all of these form my most precious memories of undergraduate and postgraduate study here; most reluctantly, however, I have to say goodbye now.

Here I have not only acquired numerous scholarships and awards but also gained genuine happiness from volunteer work and social experience. Here I have grown into a mature and strong girl, willing to take future responsibilities in life.

Here is Shanghai Jiao Tong University, a fertile soil for generations of talented students. From here, my dream sets sail and I am to further my PhD study at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology with a full scholarship.

The university motto, ‘Gratitude and Responsibility’, has been imprinted on every SJTU student’s mind. At this time of departing, I still recall the promise we all have made to ourselves and to SJTU: “Today I am proud of Shanghai Jiao Tong University and tomorrow I will make the university proud of me.” Now the time has come for me to fulfill my promise.

Wish SJTU and all SJTU students a bright future!
